Syncing my Windows Media Player playlist over to a 605


PROBLEM SOLVED!

Go to the Archos website and type in your model number - my case 605 WiFi - and it shows you a list of firmware downloads. Just click to download the latest firmware update which you should save in your desktop - it's about 45Mb-. Once te download is complete open My Computer on your PC and click on teh Archos icon which takes you to internal hard drive icon, click on this icon and paste the update (aos) file from your desktop into this level of teh Archos - Don't paste it into any of the folders as it wont work!

When you disconnect your Archos from your PC it will display that it has found an update and would you like to install it, click on Yes and Voila! WMP playlist will now sync properly to the Archos!

Hope this helps you teh way it helped me.

Cheers

Keith

Archos 605 wi /fi only puts music on hard drive


A couple things to note. First.
Make sure the files are the right format.
second, make sure they are in the music folder.
third... sometimes it won't read them. you can still play them here's how:

Go on your archos go to music, than at the bottom click on hard drive.... you can play everything there.... i recommend not synching it... but dragging and dropping them in by hand... i like doing things basic...

Problems when i sync my archos with media player


Sounds familiar, I did that a few years ago, then it seemed that it formatted my whole mp3, then copied what i wanted. So if I wanted to sync 1 song, that was all on my mp3 after the sync...
That's the last time I used sync, bad memories.
I now copy manually from the PC to my Archos. Then you can control the order of the mapsand the maps you add. If you sych, WMP puts every map in the library in the Arhos music folder.
I just don't get the point of synchronising...

Archos 604, frustrating problem.


Ribbon on hard drive came loose, take out battery. remove 2 screws on inside of battery compartment (not the ones mounting the plastic frame) remove 2 screws on side of unit(not all four, tough to get back together if you do. take ribbon and reset it into hard drive first, then unit. slide battery back on and backcover, turn on, problem sould be sovled. If not, try again the ribbon is not seated. it took me 3 or 4 times, about half an hour, with jewlers phillips-head screwdriver. my Archoes was a 604 wi-fi but it shoud work pretty much the same on 404, 504, 604, 605, 705 605 wi-fi, and 705 wi-fi.

Firmware upgrade results in arclibrary boot failure


I managed to overcome the problem by doing a factory reset. Unfortunately doing this initially created more problems in that on reboot the main screen appearance looked as it should but was almost inoperable. When the usb cable was connected to my pc the disc did appear on My Computer . The system folder was only 1MB. By good fortune I had copied and saved my Archos files before I carried out the factory reset. Copying the original system files ( about 20MB) back to my Archos returned normal behaviour. Further, two additional buttons appeared. One was a manual arclibrary update button and the other a USB setup button . I cannot get file transfer to operate under windows media player mode and Windows media player 11. No problem though. I use PC hard drive mode and carry out a manual arclibrary update. None of this was possible prior to the factory reset. I believe I would still be having serious problems had I not saved and restored my system files
